I googled the word ‘Princess Chair’ and the below images are the result .
The upcoming dementia conference is themed ‘Be the Change’. Well I am going to get the ball rolling by highlighting the term ‘Princess Chair’ as item #1 .
How undignified and degrading for both men and women to be placed in what is called a ‘Princess Chair’. To me this conjures up an outdated and disrespectful term that is simply undignified. This post is not about the chair itself (which is invaluable), but moreso calling it a ‘Princess’ chair. Men would not find this term endearing and I simply need to ‘call out’ this inappropriate title.
How about we call it a ‘ Comfort Chair’ until someone comes up with a better term?
